CUBA: Gifts to the Locals

Jump to last reply

In the 1990's or the early 2000's I visited Habana, Cuba with a group of eight to twelve folks. Upon leaving I left toiletries and other useful items for my maid plus a "week's stay" in tips [dollars at the time]. This was appropriate. In 2015 I hope to return to this city for a week. I'm traveling with a group from http://www.cubaexplorer.com and would like to take a suitcase full of toiletries, school supplies, and whatever else that's appropriate.

To you who have traveled solo as well as with an authorized group, did you give the locals or your housekeeper appropriate items of need? If so, were they similar to what I might take [if the company encourages it] or what? I'd appreciate your responses to this query.
